Liam's Story

"Even though my circumstances at home haven’t actually changed. My son is still very ill. I realized the other day, that I haven’t had any panic attacks since about the second week of MoodMaster! I used to have them all the time.....and I mean all the time!! (Regularly.... Sometimes more than once a day). I haven’t had even one recently! I’m feeling so much calmer and more in control. It [MoodMaster] really is making a huge difference to my life."


Brandon's Story

Brandon had shared that he had a drink problem for 18 months before attending MM, due to his marriage breakdown – "I have learnt to master new skills to control my emotional state and outlook on life. I have made significant changes to my lifestyle since attending MoodMaster. I take more exercise, am more relaxed, address problems more logically, identify things that are out of my control and I cannot change."

Brandon reported that he had stopped drinking alcohol, used meditation to get to sleep and took himself for a 20 minute walk every day since attending MoodMaster.
